A Little Praying
Xavier was outside, en guarde in case it tried to get away.
In other homes this would not be cool – finding a praying mantis.
Here, everyone is excited because we love toads, turtles, snakes and insects as much as any of God’s other creatures.
Naomi and Mary were just leaving for the horse riding lesson when the call made – which lesson makes Naomi cry when she learned she has to do it for another year.
It is hard work.
On the other hand, horse riding lessons don’t make her cry as loud as doing her dictee after school, which doesn’t make her cry as loud as having to do her remedial reading (Barton) a little while later.
Sucks when someone as absolutely sweet as her has to do all of that stuff.
“Why can’t I just watch TV,” she asks, which is a very good question.
